KDE Console Logout command (with confirmation dialog)

$ qdbus org.kde.ksmserver /KSMServer logout 1 0 0
Can be used to log out of an acrive user session when using KDE. This version will ask for confirmation with a 30 second timeout. The parameters at the end can be changed to suit your needs; The first determines if there is a confirmation dialog or not, the second determines what exactly the action taken is. The third is "when", I don't really use any other value than 0 for this. Param 1: - 0 => Do not wait for confirmation - 1 -> Wait for confirmation (30s timeout) Param 2: -1 = > Prompt for action to take, defaults to shutdown - 0 => logout - 1 => Restart - 2 => Shutdown I alias these to; alias logout="qdbus org.kde.ksmserver /KSMServer logout 1 0 0" alias logoutnow="qdbus org.kde.ksmserver /KSMServer logout 0 0 0" and so forth.
